John Monash: Engineering enterprise prior to WW1.

Reinforced Concrete T-girder Bridges. Cremona Bridge 1913.

Three of the five main spans are still in place, supported on piers in the form of cross-walls. The abutments were undermined, allowing the outer ends of the end spans to fall close to the banks. The deck closest to the camera slopes up like a steep ramp from creek bed to the top of the first pier.
